Richard began his working life as an HM customs officer, where he was
awarded two Queen’s Commendations for outstanding success in the
line of duty. Since then he has run his own building and construction
companies for 35 years, not only giving him an extensive grounding and
practical knowledge of the trade – collecting qualifications in electrical
engineering and plumbing along the way – but also an understanding of
the demands and stresses of the business environment. In 1996 he
founded The Priory, a complementary therapy centre.
After completing five years of study both in the Reiki discipline – he is a
Usui Reiki Master and teacher – and also with personal mentors, Richard
became a Healer Member of the National Federation of Spiritual Healers.
On the Professional Register of the British Society of Dowsers, of which he
has been a member since 1995, Richard has worked for many years as a
successful geopathic stress consultant and water dowser, both in the UK
and in Europe.
